Good morning and happy Groundhog's Day!
My mom's birthday is today and she always says that whether or not the groundhog sees his shadow, we have 6 more weeks of winter. Statistics show that mom is often correct. According to one article I read, Punxsutawney Phil has been right 39% of the time since predictions began in 1887.
Still, there is a certain relief when Groundhog's Day occurs. There's more light in the evening and now that the snow has melted, more of the spring bulbs are beginning to surface; don't worry, if there is even more snow, the bulbs survive.
I like this particular quote:
These days I find myself musing about the garden more because I know the warm weather will be here soon.
I think the thing I look forward to the most is clearing out the garden and walking Lucky more often. I love the longer days of spring and summer and the various colors of green of the spring.
I was once told that green is the color of healing and perhaps that is why I love spring so much.
I do love the colors of spring and summer flowers but I think my favorite time of year is the early part of the spring when the garden displays so much promise.
How are you feeling about the pending spring?
Have a safe and happy weekend!
